Better of Undead by DD Barant
Dark magic, unknown enemies, monsters of every stripe—FBI profiler Jace Valchek has seen it all. In this bizarre parallel universe, shape-shifting werewolves and blood-thirsty vampires don’t even warrant a raised eyebrow. That is, until Jace has to face what life might look like as one of them …
It starts off as just another run-of-the-mill assignment: to track down the rogue don of a mafia werewolf family before he upsets the delicate balance of the underworld. But Jace wasn’t counting on being bitten…and soon she’s fighting the growing wolf inside her with a startling antidote—vampirism. Stopping a bloody gangland war won’t be easy when Jace is feeling some new, and very inhuman, desires …
I really like this book, too. I don't agree with Jace though. I think I wouldn't like to be a minority of humans in a thropirelem world (lycanthrope, vampire, and golem). I have always been apart of the "Team Vampire" so I think her trying to become a human by fighting the vampire cells with the lycanthropic cells is stupid. I would just have them fight the lycanthropic cells with the vampire cells to become a vampire. It would be so much better than having to worry about your humanity every moment of every day. That's just what I would do though. I can understand why she chose not to do that though. She wants to go home SOMETIME. I'd want to be able to see my family, too and if she becomes a vampire that wouldn't happen.
